Skegness Town 6 Lincoln United DS 1

Martyn Bunce’s men bounced back from conceding a goal midway through the first half to hit Lincolnshire League new boys Lincoln United Development Squad for six at the Vertigo Stadium on Friday night.

On a dusty and hard surface the game was played at a frenetic pace and proved to be a useful work-out for both squads.

The Lincoln keeper was the busier during the early stages, keeping out two Will Britton efforts with his legs, and a Jordan Smith strike from the edge of the penalty area crashed against his cross bar.

But it was at the other end that the deadlock was broken, Jack Wilkinson heading United in front.

The goal appeared to knock Skegness out of their stride but skipper Courtney Warren restored parity with an equaliser before the break.

The second half belonged to the seasiders, who scored five more times.

Warren, Jordan Potts and Smith notched one each while Alex Nichols grabbed a brace, including a penalty.
